REX published three bound volumes of drawings from the mid 1970’s through the 1980’s available through gay bookstores and the growing gay magazine circulation of the time: Drummer, The Alternative, Dungeon Master, Mandate Reader, QQ and others.

Rex is a living American artist and illustrator closely associated with homosexual fetish art of 1970s and 1980s New York and San Francisco. He avoids photographs and does not discuss his personal life. His drawings influenced gay culture through graphics made for famous nightclubs including the Mineshaft and his influence on artists such as Robert Mapplethorpe. Much censored, he has remained a shadowy figure saying that his drawings "defined who I became" and that there are "no other 'truths' out there".
